Longing for the Lord?

This week, I've been feeling a longing to spend a few days with Jesus.  Have you ever felt that?  He is my Father, my Savior, my Everything. . .how can I, as His daughter, continually become distracted and not take time to just talk to Him?  It's a really sad thing for me, because I know that He needs to be my priority.  Now, I'm feeling the loss and the longing to just be with Him.

With my EMT class starting on Wednesday, I've had a lot of homework to do beforehand, and have kind of gotten wrapped up in it all.  There is so much to learn in the medical field.  So many things to remember.  But where is the Lord?  It's not like I'm studying in seminary, where the Lord is the focus.  I'm called to a field that needs Jesus.  People that need help in their immediate needs. To a place of high stress levels, where your skills are put to the test.  To a field that focuses on the physical and not the spiritual.  Right now, I'm not an EMT yet.  I haven't even started school.  Why on earth is it hard to find time to spend with my Father?  My wonderful, beautiful, Father?  It should be easy.  But it's not.  

It's amazing how you can get so wrapped up in what your doing and trying to learn, and forget to put your focus on Him.  But how can you forget our Lord? It must not really be forgetfulness, it must be more like negligence. noun
Failure to take proper care in doing something

Doesn't this single word describe it so well?  

It really is negligence on our part.  For it is our duty to spend time with the Lord, and draw close to Him.  He is there the whole time, just waiting for us to share our thoughts and listen to His voice.  Isn't that wonderful?  Our Lord loves to talk to us, if we would only use our time wisely and spend it with Him!

On Friday night, I had the blessing of going over to a good friends' house, and it was SO refreshing to just talk about Jesus!  That is pretty much all we talked about the entire time.  We talked about what the Lord has done, the things we have learned, and just about how awesome He is!  Because He IS amazing!  I would encourage each of you, to talk to someone and share the wonders of our God because He is worthy to be praised.  It will bring a joy to your spirit, and I'm sure it makes Jesus happy too!

I will definitely be making more of an effort this week, to spend lots of time with Him.  He is the One we are living for.  He is the One who created us.  He is the One who loves us unconditionally.  He is our Heavenly Father.  What could be a better way to worship Him, then to spend a few minutes, or even hours, with Him alone?  Sit at His feet, and adore our Father. 

He is wonderful and greatly to be praised



  1. Such wise words. I know we all fail to make God first priority in our lives. I know that I certainly have. But I am making a better effort to put Him first every day. I know that if I want success, then I need to place Him first.
    Jesus is amazing! He amazes me more and more every day! I am so glad that you have found that!

  2. Yes its so true!!
